WASHINGTON ― The Center for Coastal Conservation, an advocacy group for recreational marine fishing and boating, has changed its name to the Center for Sportfishing Policy. The name change went into effect on Dec. 1.
“Under the new name, the Center for Sportfishing Policy will continue to advocate for sound fisheries policy and communicate with Congress on behalf of the saltwater recreational fishing and boating community,” president of Center for Sportfishing Policy, Jeff Angers, said.
With the new name came a newly redesigned website and web address. The web address is now SportfishingPolicy.com.
As the website states, the Center for Sportfishing Policy’s mission “is to maximize opportunity for saltwater recreational anglers by organizing, focusing and engaging recreational fishing stakeholders to speak with one voice to shape federal marine fisheries management policy.”
